The GC32 International Class Association is the driving force behind GC32 one design foiling catamaran racing globally.
The Class Association’s main responsibilities are to enforce the one-design aspect of the GC32 catamaran, to ensure that the playing field during racing remains level at all times and that highest levels of safety are not only upheld, but continually reappraised, across all aspects of GC32 racing.
Principally the Class Association is the forum between owners of GC32 teams and third parties such as race organisers and others officials and bodies involved with the class.
Active participation in the Class Association by owners and team managers is encouraged to ensure that the direction of the class continues in line with their requirements and wishes. It also determines the future of GC32 competition, as well as encouraging new participants thereby maintaining the value of the fleet.
In the interest of maintaining the fairness of the racing, it is the Class Association’s job to regulate the rules.
Every GC32 owner or team participating in GC32 International Class Association-sanctioned racing event is obliged to become a member of the Class Association prior to competing on the GC32 Racing Tour, the Extreme Sailing Series or any other official GC32 class event.
Aside from allowing GC32 owners to voice their opinions and being eligible to vote on Class Rule changes, class membership includes an annual GC32 measurement certificate, issued by the Class Association’s Technical Committee.

President – Simon Delzoppo
